I see this as an opportunity to advance in my football career with the system they have. To be honest, I learnt a lot throughout the trial session. I am also very grateful that FC Osaka believed in my abilities to help their squad enhance its performance in the J3 League competition. I will do my best to make my family, Selangor FC, and Malaysia proud, with the goal that more local talent will be discovered by other countries. God willing."
